Day 14 - Position Day (NM to CO)

TUE 09 JUNE 2015

Treated today as a position day ready for our last chance at severe weather tomorrow (Wednesday) in Nebraska and/or Kansas. Long slog north from Albuquerque (NM) with the primary aim of Cheyenne (WY), but turns out all the hotels are fully booked there (presumably some event on) so we've stopped at Fort Collins (CO) instead.

Not much to report weather-wise, the usual thunderstorms over the Rockies to our west on our journey north gave some CG lightning, making it 15 consecutive days of lightning visible (i.e. every single day of the trip thus far). Let's hope that trend continues!
